Rated 5 out of 5 by GoBuffs from Love it! I love this swim skirt! I wanted a new suit for a trip this summer. I planned to buy another swim mini which is what I currently have, but when I saw this longer skirt and the reviews, I ordered one of each to see which I preferred. This longer skirt was much more flattering on me, so I kept this and sent the mini back. We snorkel quite a bit, and I was a little worried about the skirt billowing in the water, but it wasn't a problem at all. I normally wear a size 8 in pants, but find swim suit bottoms tend to run a bit smaller, so originally ordered a size 10 but ended up exchanging for a 12. I am 5'3" and weigh 127. So, like other reviewers, I would recommend going up a size or two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Breezytymr from Awesomeness Soars To New Heights After having researched and tried on many swim suits and swim skirts, this gem has beaten them all by far. Everything about it is perfect and it truly is very slimming! I called for sizing before purchasing and I'm so glad I did. I got size 8 (28 1/2" W, 38 1/2" Hips and 16 1/2" Backside Length which is just a bit longer than the front). I am 5'2" -- 129 lbs and this skirt is so comfortable and fits like a dream! I agree with other reviews about being able to wear it around town which is such an added plus! Just ordered my 2nd color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by crestofthewave from Fits and feels great I wear a size 10 and it fit just right. I am pear-shaped and it does an excellent job of covering my thighs and backside. The skirt stretches out a slightly when wet but did not give me any "ballooning" problems and dried reasonably quickly. For a slimming skirt I found it remarkably lightweight with a nice drape to the fabric. The waistband sat at my waist and did not cut into my torso. I purchased this skirt with the slimming swimwear tankini top and found the set to be the most flattering swimsuit I've had in a long, long time! No need for a cover-up, either - looks like a mini-dress when dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Renfield from Great Swim Skirt Wanted decent coverage for lumpy legs for swimwear and this fit the bill. Actually longer than expected, but not unhappy with this. Plan to wear it walking in a 1/2 marathon coming up. Fabric is super: stretchy, light, but not clingy. Attached panty is perfect with no binding. Haven't laundered it yet, but will use mild detergent & tumble lightly in dryer. Also purchased a patterned tankini top to wear if swimming, and am fairly pleased with this as well. Good value, as I purchased it on Daily Sale, but probably wouldn't have purchased at regular price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Annie from Larger sizes run very small! I really like this swim skirt, but had to order 2 sizes up to get a comfortable fit. I wear a Size 12 in pants and shorts, but usually order a 14 in swim skirts. I ordered a 14 and it was super tight. So I bit the bullet and ordered a 16 AND an 18, as I was having a hard time finding a longer swim skirt in navy, and wanted to be sure I got one that fit. Well, the 14 and 16 are going back because they were way too tight. I am keeping the 18. Maybe because it is supposed to have tummy control it is tighter, but this size 12 girl felt like a stuffed sausage in the 14 and 16!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Forpeople from Great skirt! Very classy I am really looking forward to wearing this when I take my vacation this winter! It is very classy and well made. It does run small. I bought the size 8, the smallest size but I am only 5'1" and weight about 100 pounds. I normally wear a size 4-petite top and a size 2-petite bottom -- so you can see this is running small! The skirt is a little snug around the waist but the underlying plants are a little loose in the hips. Even so, no one will see those pants, so it doesn't matter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LuvFootball from Runs LONG Per the other reviews, I ordered up a size in this swim skirt (a size larger than my other LLBean swimsuits). Perhaps because of this it was not 'slimming' or even snug. The panty is not fully lined and the beautiful color faded within 4 weeks of daily wear. When wet, the skirt stretches significantly - when I exit the pool, the skirt extends to the top of my knees! As with the coordinating top, this would be a nice swim skirt for occasional use, but it does not hold up for daily use. It is nice in that it does cover the essentials and is comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by greenmountainfriend from Second skin Purchased this and tank top in black for a recent 10-day trip to the Bahamas and rarely took them off. 5'10", 180lbs and the size 18 fit perfectly. No gaps, no dips no unwanted exposure. The skirt was not bulky, didn't float in the water and dried so we could go from beach to town fashionably -even a little flirty!! Would buy in a different color in a heartbeat. Made climbing in and out of a kayak look graceful!
